Discover the story of Dante Alighieri in Ravenna

Dante Alighieri, after his exile from Florence in 1302 and long wanderings, accepted the invitation of Guido Novello da Polenta, lord of Ravenna. He arrived in the city and remained there until his death, which occurred in September 1321. The small temple that preserves his remains is located in the heart of the city.

Dante concluded his Comedia in Ravenna, finding here great inspiration for the third cantica, the Paradise. He was undoubtedly moved by the magnificence of the early Christian mosaics, the “thick and living” pine forest that surrounds the city and the historical events. As we visit the places, I will tell you the stories, which the atmospheres and the extraordinary work of the “sommo poeta” still evoke.

For us, Luana’s tour brought the history of Ravenna and its Unesco sites to life. Luana is clearly an expert on the subject and shares her knowledge in a very relatable way. Ravenna and this tour by Luana are a highlight of our visit to Italy!
